NBA Picks Analysis: Miami is an NBA best 23-2 at home and despite Dwayne Wade’s being banged up they should knock the Grizzlies to the hardwood by double-digits tonight. Memphis has some nice front court size to give the Heat a headache but at home Miami is a different animal. Miami feeds off the home crowd’s adrenaline and Memphis has proved to be an ordinary sports odds play on the road. The Heat vs Grizzlies Odds Over/Under is at 189.5 points.
LeBron James is now in-sync after battling a short shooting slump and he will fire away with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh to overpower a stingy Grizzlies defense. Miami shoots 77.1% from the line compared to Memphis’s 75.1% mark which is an added ATS nugget that should help produce a cover against the sports odds. Bet Miami for 2 UNITS ($200 to win $180) with 1 UNIT on the point spread and 1 UNIT on the moneyline.
